A 1,582-square-foot, one-story stucco home is apparently considered a “cottage” in the Old Enfield section of Old West Austin—in this case, one built in 1965, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and some kind of detached studio with a kitchen, offered “as-is” for $905,000. It has a large front patio and a backyard shaded by mature trees.
A two-story, detached condo asking $869,000 offers mod living in the popular South Austin Bouldin Creek neighborhood. The 1,886-square-foot smart home has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and features tall ceilings, walls of windows, and built-in shelving and seating. It also has a two-car carport and a private backyard with a wraparound deck, a gas fire pit, an outdoor fan, and a shed, with landscaped steel planters serving as borders.
Located in the recently opened 70 Rainey building in Downtown’s Rainey Street neighborhood, a condo asking $879,300 has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,128 square feet. The unit has north- and east-facing views with sizable windows in each room and a balcony off the north end of the building. It has the expected high-end finishes and luxury resort-style amenities. HOA fees are are $655 per month.
Built in 1948, a one-story, frame house retains its historic charm and offers a central location in leafy Tarrytown. Asking $915,000, the 1,604-square-foot home has three bedrooms and one bathroom and features hardwood floors, natural light, and built-ins. The back deck, yard, and garden look especially lovely and peaceful.
A groovy, remodeled 1970s home in Barton Hills is currently on offer for $850,000. The one-story, stucco house (lots of stucco this week!) has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and measures 2,100 square feet. It features an expanded and updated kitchen, a super-nifty skylight, full-wall glass doors (bonus: built-in dog door), a fireplace, and a xeriscaped yard with a deck and patio.
